THE ART OF WAR

February 25, 2005 // by admin

 

Readers of ITRZ know about my good friend Steve Mumford, the New York artist who inspired me to travel to Iraq by going there himself in April, 2003–and returned on three subsequent occasions.  This month’s Harper’s magazine (no link, sorry) features an eight page portfolio of his superb drawings and watercolors.  Short of actually going there, you can get no better idea of what Iraq looks and feels like, especially from the military side of things, than from Steve’s work.

For a short profile I wrote of Steve for American Enterprisemagazine, go here.  For Steve’s experiences in Iraq, recorded in his highly-acclaimed series “Baghdad Journal,” go here.
